We offer a variety of heat-resistant glass for use in wood stove or fireplace inserts, medical equipment, commercial lighting, photovoltaics, home appliances, optics, and electronics. For your convenience we offer FireLite, Neoceram, BOROFLOAT®, Pyroceram, and PYREX®.
Neoceram is ideal for use in high efficiency heating appliances, with almost 3 times the heat resistance for wood stoves and fireplace doors. Neoceram can withstand continuous temperatures up to 1292° F. It is also thermal shock resistant and has a slight amber tint. Available in 3/16″.
Pyroceram is a transparent ceramic product used in applications requiring high heat resistance and thermal shock resistance. Like Neoceram, Pyroeram is available in 3/16″, has an amber tint, and has some distortion, which is inherent to most ceramic products. Pyroceram is ideal for high temperature vision windows, ovens and broilers, light fixtures, and electronics.
BOROFLOAT® borosilicate is a transparent near colorless glass. It’s excellent transmission and its very weak fluorescence intensities over the entire light spectrum make BOROFLOAT® ideal for a wide range of applications in optics, optoelectronics, photonics, and analytical equipment. It is high heat resistant and has high thermal shock resistance. It has a low thermal coefficient of expansion and its coefficient matches that of silicone (anodic bonding). BOROFLOAT® has low fluorescence, high UV-transmission, high chemical resistance against acids, bases and organic substances, low alkali content in the glass composition, and also low specific weight. Available in 1/8″ and 7/32″. Applications for BOROFLOAT® are as follows:
Home Appliances (interior oven doors, fittings in microwave appliances)
Environmental engineering, chemical industry (resistant linings and sight)
Lighting (protective panels for spotlights and high-power floodlights)
Photovoltaics (glass for solar collectors)
Precision engineering, optics (optical filters and mirrors etc.)
Medical technology, biotechnology (slides, biochips, titration plates, DNA sequencers, micro-fluidic systems)
Semiconductor engineering, electronics, sensors (wafers, display glass)
PYREX® is a borosilicate glass made by Corning. It has excellent thermal properties, with a low coefficient of thermal expansion allowing for good heat shock resistance needed for high operating temperatures. PYREX® can be ground, polished, and coated. Applications include substrate for dielectric coatings, sensor substrates, heat shields, neutron absorbers, high temperature applications, and harsh environments. Available in 1/8″ and 7/32″.
The FireLite Family of Products continues to be the most commonly specified and trusted fire-rated glazing in north America. Clear and wireless, FireLite features fire ratings from 20 minutes to 3 hours with a variety of impact safety ratings. FireLite is available in premium polished and standard grades. FireLite is UL listed.
